@ Rich: the French band Achwghâ Ney Wodei ‎released a cassette that was sealed inside a ceramic figurine -- you have to break the figurine to get at it. I also have cassette that's sewn inside a yarmulke -- I've never opened it.

a friend distributed his cd in a lunchbag, accompanied by lots of other goodies. if he made cassettes, which i don't know, that would've been the most ungainly packaging i know of. as it is i had to take the cd out to file it with my others, and put the bag with the other stuff in it in a box of basically unrelated stuff.
  Tue. 11/6/18 12:12pm Dean:

@ljfw: I've never stayed at a hotel in PDX, though I've considered it. My entire family, four of us, will stay in NE with my sister-in-law's family at their home, which is a pleasure, but a tight fit.

i used to take as much time as needed to preserve packaging when i opened records. a bit obsessive i suppose.
but yeah i'd love to have that car! ...but i'd also HAVE to listen to the tape!
  Tue. 11/6/18 12:21pm Dean:

Oddly, I'm mildly obsessive about removing labels from records, e.g., price tags. It's odd, because I appreciate the evidence of provenance a price tag supplies. But I also like a clean cover, and I'm particularly fond of figuring out harmless ways to remove adhesive residue. If I had it all to do over again, I'd get a Ph.D. in adhesives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:21pm Rich in Washington:

Was is Merzbow who released either a cassette or CD that was permanently installed in a car's deck, so you had to buy the car? Or am I thinking of someone else. Right now, it's defying my google fu.
  Tue. 11/6/18 12:23pm Dean:

Throbbing Gristle released 24 hours of live shows on cassettes in a little briefcase.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:23pm Rich in Washington:

I have this weird thing about so-called 'hype stickers' on records. I don't like shrinkwrap, so I throw the stickers away with the wrap. I hate them. It's like someone saying 'fuck the designer! Let's hear from the marketing department!'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:23pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: Yep, that was Merzbow

@ Dean: I'm obsessive about removing price tags. God only knows how many hours of my life I've wasted doing that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:24pm Rich in Washington:

I've always wanted to own TG's 24 Hours ever since reading about it in Trousers Press Guide To Records as a teenager.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:25pm Rich in Washington:

I've even thought of going so far as to make a fake one with the digital files and scans I have, simply for my own fetishistic enjoyment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: Yep -- I too hate hype stickers. The ones I've seen are usually about the "long-awaited" reissue of something only three people had ever heard.
  Tue. 11/6/18 12:26pm Dean:

Well, here's where we differ. I love hype stickers. I more or less meticulously clip them from the shrinkwrap and keep them with the jewel case or cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:26pm Rich in Washington:

I find Ronsonol, Zippo Lighter Fuel or straight up Naptha (the active ingredient of both) works wonders at removing decals. It evaporates away and leaves little evidence to the slipcover.
  Tue. 11/6/18 12:30pm Dean:

I first learned about the TG 24 hours box at the Cabaret Voltaire/Young Marble Giants/Monitor show in LA in October 1980. Somebody was showing off a copy of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:31pm Rich in Washington:

There are a few records where the hype sticker is desirable for some reason and I'll carefully peel them off and affix them to the poly bag I use to replace the shrinkwrap.
I also recently noticed that a lot of records I bought as a teen and young adult are still in their shrinkwrap and have hype stickers still, and even price stickers from my favorite Tower Records store.
As a kid, I knew that any record that had the handwritten 'RECOMMENDED!' by some mystery clerk was a must-buy.

Some hype stickers are informative -- but most are just annoying attempts to browbeat you into buying the thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:36pm coelacanth∅:

agreed Rich @12.23 it's disrespectful of the thought and possible creativity that went into the album design. and yes spent lots of time carefully removing stickers - occasionally ruining the cover at least as bad as the sticker did! more than once (long ago) i retouched the album cover with colored pencils or pens after the sticker pulled part of it away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 12:42pm coelacanth∅:

i've bought more used records than new ones, and assholes at stores ("second coming records" comes to mind) smacked 2" diameter stickers, with super adhesive and 4 perforations across them on all their albums. often 2-3 stickers. never on a shrinkwrap. often in the most obnoxious location they could find on the cover art (like over a person's face)

OOPS! Just realized that I've already featured this Die Form cassette on "Tape Hiss" -- back in 2016. Guess I'm getting senile. Although, unlike that show, this show will be archived ... so there's that.

The cover of the cassette on now ("Truc") is a square box that resembles the box a small reel-to-reel tape would come in.

Avatar Tue. 11/6/18 12:58pm Mary Wing:

Hello Tony and hissers! Loving the talk about stickers and price tags! I am with Dean in the love 'em camp for hype stickers; I have a bunch of '80s ones in a notebook somewhere. But I, too, like a clean cover, and have messed up many a used record that had the pink St. Mark's Sounds price sticker on them. :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/6/18 1:00pm northguineahills:

What about the notches taken out of used LP covers?, (and cds), that used to annoy me).

oh yeah st.mark's sounds. maybe even worse than second coming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 1:12pm Tony Coulter:

I think they used super glue for those stickers -- plus they were segmented, so just when you thought you were on a roll as far as peeling it off, part of the label would break off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 1:15pm coelacanth∅:

i actually did save some hype stickers too (which means i still have them, somewhere) but only after carefully removing them.
and occasionally a shrinkwrap itself was unique and i'd try to save that. ("wish you were here" comes to mind. deep blue.)

Buzzcocks' first album out of the UK was released in a shopping bag. I still have it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 1:25pm coelacanth∅:

Mary i don't know! we (teenagers) listened to that album a billion times and not infrequently i had to carefully slip the blue shrinkwrap off again because someone wanted to see the album art. i vaguely remember it starting to tear. i might've given up, but it's stored away and i don't know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 1:27pm Tony Coulter:

Er, this release is older than I just said -- it came out around three-and-a-half weeks ago, not two weeks ago. So, practically ready for the cut-out bins.
  Tue. 11/6/18 1:28pm ike:

Sounding good! Hmm, I wonder if I still have any of the 90s CD hype stickers that I carefully peeled off the shrink wrap (when possible — sometimes they’d tear) before unwrapping the CD and then tried to save inside the CD booklets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 1:28pm coelacanth∅:

wasn't there a rolling stones or led zeppeling album with a custom shrinkwrap? i can't quite grasp this important morsel of information which must be festering in my head somewhere.
i think so though.
  Tue. 11/6/18 1:28pm Dean:

I've always wondered whether there are cut-out copies of Traffic's Shoutout at the Fantasy Factory or Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys.
Avatar Tue. 11/6/18 1:28pm Mary Wing:

I always took the shrinkwraps off since they tore so easily. The only outer wrapping I've preserved is the silver mylar wrapping for Madonna's "Sex" book, heh.

i had no problem with stickers on jewel cases. why care? but occasionally there'd be one on a "digipak" (is that right?) and that would piss me off. i know at least of a Nick Cave cd and a ooioo cd that the covers are compromised by stickers or glue.
  Tue. 11/6/18 1:31pm Dean:

(This thread reminds me of a long comment board on one of Bob Brainen's shows during the past year or so. He invited listeners/commenters to help him inventory all albums with die-cut covers.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 1:37pm coelacanth∅:

in through the out door had brown paper and the water-sensative inside. i have one that i never wet, but humidity caused it to start being colored anyway.
...there's another though.
i know "some girls" had a "temporary" cover saying "pardon our appearance while we renovate" or something like that. maybe that's what i'm thinking of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 1:39pm coelacanth∅:

Dean what do you mean by "die cut" cover? (like through the past,darkly?)
  Tue. 11/6/18 1:42pm Dean:

That's one simple example, coelacanth∅, as are the two Traffic albums or E Pluribus Funk, but Some Girls is a better example, because it includes cuts from the interior of the cover, not just the border.

The Some Girls cover was changed due to legal challenges by celebrities depicted on it.

Mary i happen to be in the house where most of my records are stored so i had to look. i found my original copy of wish you were here (& another one i don't remember obtaining) and no shrink wrap any more - unless i stored it elsewhere, which i might've. i did pull the record out, knowing the my former self could've folded the shrinkwrap up and stuck it inside; and i see that i saved the round sticker (i.pinimg.com...) from the shrinkwrap...glued it to the middle of the record!

it was on the outer wrap. (i certainly wasn't concerned about "collectibility" then if i glued the sticker to the record!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:23pm Rich in Washington:

I find that I have to regularly change the poly bag on my copy of The Feederz Ever Feel Like Killing Your Boss? because the sandpaper cover shreds the bag every couple of years or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:24pm Tony Coulter:

There's a current reissue label that *stitches* "hype-obis" onto the cover of their LPs. (I'm blanking on the name of the label at the moment.) Anyway -- it's tres annoying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:24pm coelacanth∅:

i remember that many imports were never shrinkwrapped. they just put them into nice, sturdy plastic sleeves; and sometimes, since the sleeves were interchangeable, the album cover itself bore promo stickers, unfortunately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:25pm Rich in Washington:

This song is really aptly titled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

(Maybe)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:26pm coelacanth∅:

stitches?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

Yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:27pm coelacanth∅:

but that sounds like album art unto itself!

Hiss! Boo!
Hooray!
  Tue. 11/6/18 2:28pm Dean:

Perversely, I also like promotional copies of LPs that feature a big banner of track listings, usually affixed to the bottom of the album cover, disguising a good three inches of the art work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:29pm coelacanth∅:

and (re:Rich@2.23) wasn't there another album with an abrasive cover, designed specifically to damage the albums around it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:29pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, Stanley!
  Tue. 11/6/18 2:30pm Dean:

I have a Chickasaw Mudd Puppies CD encased in burlap, and Sam Shalabi's "luteness" has a bit of random hardened gum-like stuff affixed to the jewel case.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:32pm Tony Coulter:

Oh: The label that stitches on their hype stickers/obis is Numero Group. Here's an example: www.discogs.com...

That last comment of mine wasn't an instruction. It was a suggestion for a great album title.

Hey, Steveo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:44pm Rich in Washington:

@coelacanth∅: I know what you're saying but I can't think of who. I do know Feederz stole the idea from Guy DeBord, who I think did it to a book, but I am pretty sure another, unrelated artist also did it with an LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:45pm Tony Coulter:

Olle Borg is apparently a well-know visual artist in Sweden. Here's a peak at some of his stuff: spgallery.se...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:45pm Rich in Washington:

I think there was also a band who released a 7 inch with the inside of the jacket, record included, all glued together. Again, I cannot recall who at the moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:46pm Rich in Washington:

This is cool, Tony!

NON's first release was a 7" EP with an eccentric spindle hole in addition to the usual one in the middle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:48pm Rich in Washington:

Yes, Dean! That's it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:48pm Tony Coulter:

Each copy of this Olle Borg LP comes with a hand-made cover by Borg (tho mine is just a promo copy, with a plain white cover)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/6/18 2:50pm chris:

hi, Tony and folks. glad i at least made it for the Olle Borg. this is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:50pm Rich in Washington:

Ever buy any of Eugene Chadbourne's cassette releases or early CDR releases? They're usually literally made from stuff lying around casa de Chadbourne.
  Tue. 11/6/18 2:50pm Dean:

The first Meat Puppets 7" came with an original ink drawing (by one of the band?) on ordinary three-hole-punched ruled paper. I cherish my copy.
  Tue. 11/6/18 2:51pm Dean:

Buddy of mine has one of those Chadbourne CDRs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

I've done that with old records; drill off center holes. A bit called a forstner drill bit works best. It makes a neater hole and won't crack the record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Chris! Yeah, this Olle Borg is great! I'm now on the hunt for this thing he's on: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

And again: I *will* be archiving today's show, just to break with tradition.
  Tue. 11/6/18 2:55pm Dean:

The same buddy did an "alternate hole" remix of Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street." Mary Wing has played it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CCB59CTZmM

I'm just not set up to store weird/overly large boxes, etc, for records, CDs or cassettes. At least with the latter, I can just put them in storage since I rarely access tapes unless I'm ripping them.
But some of those Caroliner Rainbow releases are a pain in the ass to store. My wife thought one of them was a used box of office paper and nearly threw it out. It was also smashed flat by the time I'd bought it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/6/18 2:55pm chris:

oh, excellent news! thanks, Tony.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/6/18 2:56pm steveo:

been in and out today, but really enjoying what I've been able to hear. yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/6/18 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: At least one of my Caroliner packages has medical waste in it.
